THIS little fellow had a lucky escape last week.
In hot pursuit of moths, he forgot to look where he was flying, crashed into the lid of an empty skip and ended up dazed and confused in the leftovers at the bottom.
Luckily, he was seen the next morning and taken to Dr Jamie Andrews, looking very much the worse for wear.
He spent two days and one night with Dr Andrews being cleaned and dried.
On the second day the frogmouth took over cleaning duties himself and did a thorough groom of his feathers, a sign that he was recovered.
The frogmouth rests up during the day and feeds at night, so in the evening Dr Andrews returned his patient to a tree near where he had his accident.
